Bone Shaker ale available in cans
Moat Bone Shaker Brown is an English-style brown ale with a rich, malt body and medium hop bitterness, and is 5.5% alcohol by volume. It is the company’s second beer to be distributed in this unique size package.
Moat Mountain became one of the first small craft breweries to bring a beer to market in 24 oz cans with its release of Moat Iron Mike Pale Ale in 2011.
“Craft beer consumers are embracing aluminium can packaging in increasing numbers,” says Steve Johnson, who is the brewery owner. “At the same time, there is continued growth in single serve packaging. By working with Rexam, we were able to embrace both these trends and bring our beers to market in a 24oz can that consumers love.”
The company chose Rexam cans because they help its beers stand out in a crowded marketplace. Moat Mountain also benefits from the many advantages that aluminium cans deliver for beer including increased freshness. They are also fully recyclable.
“As the industry leader in 24 oz can production, we were able to work with Moat Mountain and help them launch in this popular package,” adds Rich Grimley, chief operating officer, Rexam Beverage Can Americas. “It’s a great choice to stand out on retail shelves while delivering superior recycling and environmental benefits as well as filling and distribution economics.”
Moat Mountain Bone Shaker Brown Ale and Iron Mike Pale Ale are currently available at select retailers in Maine and New Hampshire.
